Hi,

If narrow border is the problem in XFCE, then just make it thick! A thick border is even better actually. - Apr 24 2013
Hi,

Installed this theme on Xubunbtu 12.10, hoping that it will work like "MediterraneanNight Series 2.01". The theme seems to work, but the window border style is not working.

Can you please make it work for XFCE?

Thank very much in advance. - Apr 20 2013
I can't believe I am asking this. I didn't like dark theme at all. But since I use your Meriterranean Night themes. I love the Night themes. Do you plan to make a "Night" version of Gnome Cupertino too? - Apr 15 2013

You are right, I mix different themes. Looking forward for the next update. And thanks for thinking about XFCE. I was a Gnome user a few months ago. But got annoyed by too much of the "modern" GUI gimmicks.

I have tested all Mediterranean themes + various Windows borders. The best combination I like so far is MediterraneanNightDarkest + BlueBird:
http://tinypic.com/r/jtscd1/6

(Please note: to read better, I need to improve the contrast, I have changed the font color to black by editing the /usr/share/themes/MediterraneanNightDarkest/gtk-2.0/gtkrc) - Mar 10 2013
Hi,

1. The TributeBlue theme in XFCE doesn't look like the screenshot (the menu is still gray): http://tinypic.com/r/o72dlw/6

2. You left MediterraneanNigh-xfce-wide-border.tar.gz inside the MediterraneanNight folder. Not sure if it was intentional but I have installed it and the wide border looks very nice. May be make if official in next release?

Gorgeous theme. Thanks for the bug fixes related to XFCE. - Mar 09 2013
Hi,

I love so much this theme. Would you be OK to consider adding a green color theme, in the same veine than what you have already made in blue?

Thanks in advance. - Feb 28 2013
Hi Oscar,

May I buy you a beer? The solution you suggested works like a champion. I have asked this question in a few forums. Never got an asnwer. Today, I got the right answer within a day.

I suppose you suggested the settings in ~/.gtkrc-2.0 because this would fix the "icon text background" issue regardless of the theme I selected in /usr/share/themes?

In other words, if I integrated your solution in /usr/share/themes/MediterraneanNightDarkest/gtk-2.0/gtkrc directly, the issue may show up again if I select another Mediterranean color theme? - Feb 22 2013
Hi,

Me again, this time with another issue on XFCE 4.10. After I applied Mediterranean theme, the desktop now have a white background around the icon text. Before that, the icon text was written directly on the wallpaper. Can you please show me how to fix that?

Screenshot (icon text on XFCE Desktop have white background): http://tinypic.com/r/dgqge8/6

Thanks in advance - Feb 22 2013
Hi,

No need to bother, I have played around editing various color values in /usr/share/themes/MediterraneanNightDarkest/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and could replace the dark theme backgroud color to something lighter. - Feb 22 2013
Hi,

Using Xubuntu 12.10 (XFCE 4.10). This theme is incredibly beautiful Thanks.

Mediterranean NightDarkest: the inactive tabs are colored in black-grey in Firefox. While elsewhere the tabs are light grey. Is it normal?

Thanks

Hi,

I like this theme. Used it until today, I have to change for another theme. I got confused by the small scrollbar. I know this is old school to use a scrollbar while most of people use the mouse scroll wheel. But on a long page a scrollbar still scroll faster. Hope you'll have an updated version soon. - Mar 24 2012
Is it Ok to make the scrollbar like that?
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/?content=144972

In my opinion, FreeOSX2 theme is better. It has a preview in the "Appearance Preferences" dialog. And I like the color tone & selected item overall.

May be your theme is already perfect, but please make another version for old fashion people like me who need a traditional scrollbar.

In case you don't mind another request. When there are several opened windows. There titlebar and menu looks pretty similar. It would be nice to make the active window stand out better by making the border of the inactive windows darker.

Thanks in advance. - Mar 13 2012
Hi,

Is it OK to make the scrollbar more traditional? I suppose you intentionally designed it to be discrete. But personally I find that the current scrollbar is hard to see.

On LinuxMint 11 x64 (same as Ubuntu 11.04). I have disabled the overlay scrollbar to have a permanent scrollbar. But the scrollbar of this theme is too small. It requires some attention to position the mouse accurately. Hope you will be OK to modify.

Thanks in advance. - Mar 05 2012
Very nice thanks. On linuxmint 11 x64 (Gnome 2). Using Nautilus, the split line separating the two panes view (press F3) is a little bit too dim. Also in Nautilus, the status bar looks unfinished. (the status rectangular zone is surrounded by two black lines). Hope this is fixable. Thanks. - Mar 04 2012

Still waiting for your update. Any news? - Oct 25 2011
I would like to increase the text contrast, I changed text color to #000000. After that, in any forms where there are tabs, the inactive tabs become all black.

In my opinion, the idea to make the inactive tabs darker is a good idea. But can you make it a constant slightly darker gray than the active bar? This means the background color of the inactive tab is no longer related to the text color.

Hope that makes sense. Thanks. - Sep 06 2011
I extracted into /usr/share/themes to make the theme available for all users.

The theme is not visible in Appearance Preferences preview screen. Must Click on "Customize" and select separately "Jaehoo Elementary OSX" in "Controls" and "Window Border". This is very inconvenient. - Sep 05 2011

Fix confirmed. Finally the menu now looks much better. Thank you very much. - Oct 17 2011
Thank you for the update. There is an issue in Menu I don't know if this is related to the theme.

On some menu items, there is sometimes a checkmark in in front of the menu text to denote that the option has been set. Example: right click on an applet in Gnome panel, the "Lock to Panel" menu. You must hover the mouse over the menu item to see the checkmark.

Or Nautilus, menu "View". move the mouse on each of the menu items, you will see plenty of checkmark or dot which were hidden because they are displayed in white on white.
- Oct 16 2011
I'm using LinuxMint 11 x64. Folllowed instructions in the link you gave. Set Custom format to use the "stacked" version. Has no effect. The Clock still displays in 1 single line.

I give up. It's not big deal, that consumes a little bit the space in the panel but it's Ok. Sorry for all the troubles and thanks for taking the time to help me. - Oct 02 2011
Oh wow, that's true. Increase panel size to 48 or setting Application Font to 6 did wrap the text in the Clock applet. This looks weird however (unacceptably small text or panel larger than necessary).

But that doesn't explain why themes like MintX, LambdaMod, FusionBlue, Orta know how to wrap the Clock text without me changing anything in Panel size (36 pix) et Application Font (Ubuntu 11 or 10). May be they redraw the panel? - Oct 02 2011
Hi,

Here is a screenshot showing a comparison of the clock display: http://i56.tinypic.com/vqqv74.jpg

Top is AbsoluteLuna, Bottom is LambdaMod 0.4
Panel size = 36 pixels.

The Application Font has no effects. I have reduced the font size to a small value, I see the display shrinked but it is still on 1 line with AbsoluteLuna. There is no change in the clock settings when I switched from one theme to the other. So the text wrapping is probably something coded in the theme settings. Hope you can figure that out. - Oct 01 2011
Quote:
Most modern themes have that menu-titlebar unified look, which is very nice, but makes it hard to distinguish which window have the focus.


This is EXACTLY why I like your them better (window having focus has a color titlebar). In my opinion, the modern GUI with unified color for titlebar menu, hiding the scrollbar, putting +/-/close on the left, global menu, etc. are just gimmicks which have no real productivity improvement.
- Sep 30 2011
Thanks for the update. The new triangle icon is still too big. It stands out a little bit too much compared to the folder beside it.

Can you have a look at this theme: Lambda-Mod 0.4 http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Lambda-Mod?content=141058

It has a smaller triangle icon which I think is well balanced.

Regarding the taskbar in Absolute Luna, I think some improvements might be possible:

- Set panel size to 36 pixels. Absolute Luna, the clock displays Date & Time in one single line. This take more space. Have a look at Lambda Mod 0.4, it can display Date & Time in two lines.

-There is not enough contrast between active / inactive tasks.

I hope these comments makes sense. Looking forward to the update. - Sep 30 2011
Thank you, thank you & thank you.

For putting the color on the tiblebar and make it configurable. This is the only gripe I had about the original absolute. I thought the author didn't have enough skills to make color titlebar but now I learn from your comment that it was intentional.

One thing I would like you to review in Absolute Luna. Nautilus, left pane, folder tree. The triangle icon used for expand/collpase the parent folder is really too big. Can you male it smaller? Or may be use the +/- icon instead?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

The issue (lost of titlebar) occurred when I began playing with Dual Monitor, NVidia driver, with "Separate X Screen" option. When I changed to "Twinview" option, which combine the two monitors into a single virtual screen, the issue was gone.

May be this is a X Server or NVidia driver bug? In anyway, it's not worth wasting your time on this bug. Sorry for the vague bug report. - Aug 21 2011
Hi,

I think I am going to remove this theme for now. Since I use it, strange things happen when I change to another theme. For example, the title bar is lost. When I move back to Windows Color (I saved it under a different name), the titlebar is not restored.

Reading in some posts in Ubunti forum, some people advised to type sudo metacity --replace
This solve temporarily but the issue is back eac time I change theme. Also while the terminal is opened, I saw this message appear very frequently:

/usr/share/themes/Desert Revisited/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:111: Murrine configuration option "hilight_ratio" will be deprecated in future releases. Please use "highlight_shade" instead.

Hope there will be a more Gnome friendly version in the future. - Aug 20 2011
Thank you for the detailed answer.
No Wallis theme under Gnome. Now I understand why only some themes in Gnome are compatible with yours. LinuxMint has AuroraMint, Carbon, Cassandra, Felicia. These themes allow to apply the "controls layout" from Window Color Revisited theme.

The one I use is actually Gilouche Square http://ubuntu-art.org/content/show.php/Gilouche+Squared?content=75789
This theme has a magic trick. Its titlebar color is able to change automatically to the color of the theme. - Aug 20 2011
Now I can get close to what you show in the screenshot. But I cannot get the top window titlebar like in the screenshot. Was it supplied?

- Aug 20 2011
It was not the permission issue. I was expecting to see the preview in the Appearance Preferences window. It turns out I had to click Customize and Select the Controls tab.

This theme is simple and nice. Thanks. - Aug 20 2011
Using LinuxMint 11 x64. I have extracted to /usr/share/themes

Hi,

Lambda v0.3 is PERFECT. Absolutely love the new titlebar size and especially when it reflects the choice of color.

Forgot to tell you that the scrollbar is excellent in your theme.

This theme must win the Nobel prize of GTK Theme. Thanks very much. - Apr 24 2011
Hi, The bigger titlebar is welcome. May be make it the same size than the original Lambda would be even better. I found that the thin bar in Lambda-mod 0.1 gave an unbalanced impression.

In my opinion, the originality in this Lambda-Mod theme is the color theme. It is so refreshing compared to many other themes, which for some strange reasons, only use black and white.

I hope you will create a collection of various colors. You like red OK, can you also add Green, Blue, Brown?

Thanks in advance.
- Apr 24 2011
This theme is Super nice. I like the color titlebar very much. Thanks very much.

Wish you could implement some more colors. Here are some nice ones:

This theme also requires the same Murrina engine. I uncompress and copy it to /usr/share/themes and it works right away (It shows up in System / Preferences / Appearance).

Hope you can review it and figure out the issue in MurrinaSeasons 1.4 - Apr 22 2011
v1.4 still not working. Synaptic package shows that Murrine 0.98.1.1 is installed.

Sorry but I am going to give up on this theme. - Apr 20 2011
Forgot to mention, I use LinuxMint 10 x64, Gnome. And it is not a permission issue. I use root permission to copy the files in /usr/share/themes - Apr 17 2011
I unzip and copied in each of the locations (like other GTK themes) but your theme doesn't show up in the Appearance window. - Apr 17 2011
Oh may it the dark version is included in the download but you didn't update the screenshot?

I tried to install but how?
Drop the *.bz2 file in the Appearance windows got an error (not a theme). Unzip and copy to /usr/share/themes doesn't work either. The them doesn't show in Appearance.

Is it compatible with Gnome? Sorry for the silly question but can you give some basic instructions to install? - Apr 15 2011
Can you give the link to the version having darker colors? - Apr 15 2011
Hi,

What is the application that you use to preview and install the theme as shown in the screenshot?

I find these colors of this theme too vivid and they stand out too much, causing distraction on a long run. Can you make another variation with same colors but darker tones?

Thanks - Apr 12 2011

How come you are bad designer?!? Your theme looks better than that of those who are designers.

Thanks for the trick of the scrollbar shade. Can you show me how to color the titlebar as well?

As for the color of the titlebar. Here is a nice Blue and Green shades imitated from Zukitwo:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Zukitwo?content=140562&PHPSESSID=23db6e5b7ba70a6cc8d3da98e7fa74c1

Personally, I think Absolute would look great with a blue (or green) titlebar. - Apr 10 2011
Hi,

This is my most favorite GTK theme. Thank you vary much. Love the Absolute & Absolute Squared. I hope in future versions, you will add some color variations. For example: titlebar in Blue or Green. For some reason, the themes are now all gray, white or black. In my opinion, adding a color touch would give the theme some original touches.

Also can you make the scrollbar darker?

Thanks in advance. - Apr 07 2011

Hi,

The Equinox Evolution series look weird. In the screenshot, can you please show a screen having a scrollbar?

I test Equinox 1.40 on LinuxMint 10 (based on Ubuntu 10.10). The scrollbar is minuscule. It's a gray thin line. Is it intentional or is it a bug? Because the scrollbar in Equinox Evolution 1.30 looks thicker.

Please put Equinox original back, especially the Equinox Light and Equinox Glass.

Hi,

I like these original theme better. Especially the Equinox Light and the Equinox Glass. The Equinox Evolution which are now official in 1.40 has a serious bug. The scrollbar is minuscule, looks like a thin line.

Franfly I would rather drop the Equinox Evolution and make the Equinox Original the official themes. - Apr 07 2011
